EEPOET OP THE SUPEEII^TENDEI^T OP STEEETS. 

To THE Selectmen of the Town op Andover : 

Gentlemen, — i herewith present my third annual report 
of Highways and Bridges. 

March 28, we began work at the railroad bridge on Main 
Street and graded toward Lawrence as far as Stimpson's 
bridge, repairing the sidewalks on both sides where needed. 
On the east side, at Mr. Donovan's, one hundred and eight 
(108) one-horse loads were carted away and used for filling 
north of Stimpson's bridge. This road between the two 
bridges required over 1000 loads of broken stones. 

From there we began on Main Street where Morton crosses, 
stoning the road and filling the gutters, removing all pipe 
and bringing the sidewalks to grade as far as Benjamin 
Brown's store, at the square. The sidewalk at Edward 
Taylor's being low, it necessitated a grade of twenty inches. 

Our next move was to take the crusher to Rufus Bailey's, 
on tlie River Road. Here we opened up a new pit, and 
found material enough to macadam the whole town of 
Andover if it were situated conveniently. Five hundred loads 
were taken from here and put on the road between Fish 
Brook and house of said Bailey, making a little over one- 
half mile of road. 

While we were at work there the town teams began work 
on Bartlet Street. After having worked for a day and a half, 
the long looked for engineer arrived in the person of Mr. 
McClintock, Chelsea, Mass. I was ordered by the Select- 
men to meet them and said gentleman at the Town House at 
8.30, A.M., wliich I did. A few moments later we all started 
up Main Street to Morton, over the piece of road just com- 
pleted. No cliange was suggested by said gentleman, except 
that a grate be put in where the water dropped from a culvert 
to the brook near Edward Taylor's house. From there we 



36 

went to School Street, then to Central, to a piece of road 
macadamized last year, over this to Pratt's Hill. This was 
in a bad condition, and written complaints had been made to 
the Selectmen. I asked the engineer how I should fix it. 
After looking it over for a few minutes he said, " Leave the 
grade just as it is, put on six inches of broken stone, and the 
job is done." 

We next visited the Red Springs. He examined the 
material and pronounced it good. From there we went to 
Cuba Hill, near the old Cogswell place. I again asked his 
advice in regard to fixing this hill. From there we went to 
Marland Village to Stimpson's bridge, and looked over the 
piece of work done in April. 

At this point the Selectmen asked Engineer McClintock 
his opinion. He replied, " Gentlemen, this is the common 
sense kind of roads, and I should build in the same way 
myself. It is the way we all build them." 

We then repaired to the Town House, and in further con- 
versation he said, "• I do not understand how your Superin- 
tendent obtained such good results without a roller. I shall 
have to come to him for points." This he repeated. It was 
very gratifying to me, after having been buried with the 
Fathers of the Town at Den Rock, underneath the stone 
crusher. The interview ended, and the engineer received 
his $25 and returned on the 12.20 P.M. train. 

The governor having heard that he had been sent for 
from Andover appointed him on the State Board of Highway 
Commissioners. 

August 18 the crusher was brought back to the Red 
Springs. 

In repairing Pratt's Hill I did as the engineer suggested, 
only I put on nine inches instead of six. This we built 
twenty-two feet wide, leaving off at the Shawsheen Bridge. 
We also built twenty rods of new sidewalk on the south 
side of this road. This gives an unbroken line of stoned 
road from the river to the house of B. F. Smith on Central 
Street. 



37 

I had just commenced at B. F. Smith's to go to the South 
Church when the snow drove me off. Could I have com- 
pleted this, I should have had an unbroken stoned road 
to the house of William Brown, near the foot of High 
Street. 

Forty-one cubic yards of stone have been carried to Ballard- 
vale, near the Congregational Church. From here we went 
to Cuba Hill. This was stoned as suggested by Engineer 
McClintock of Chelsea. Turning the corner, we stoned the 
Abbott Village Hill, down to the river bridge, grading the 
sidewalk where needed, and removed the culvert in front of 
Patrick Burke's. 

School Street has been stoned from Essex to Railroad 
Street. At the Square one hundred and sixty-five dollars 
have been expended in laying drain-pipe, building manholes, 
paving, raising the flag-stones, and grading. Park Street 
has been graded from Main to Punchard Avenue ; Bartlet 
from Park to Chestnut Streets ; Chestnut from Bartlet to 
Punchard Avenue. The sidewalk on Bartlet Street has been 
filled to grade from Punchard walk, forty-two rods south re- 
quiring about fifteen inches of filling. Twenty rods have been 
graded on Porter Street. The entire street from Central to 
Woburn has been graded ; also, twenty rods on Woburn 
Street. 

One hundred and seven loads of gravel have been put on 
the road near Hardy Brothers' place in West Andover, and 
fifty-seven loads have been put on the hills near Daniel 
Trow's. 

Nearly a mile of the old railroad has been graded with the 
scraper ; also from Washington Avenue to the North Ando- 
ver line by the same machine ; also one mile from the Wil- 
mington line, coming toward Andover, on the road leading to 
Foster's Pond. 

More than three miles of road have been repaired in the 
same manner in the west part of the town. The hill on 
Lowell Street near Peter D. Smith's has been re-surfaced. 

Bushes have been cut in West Andover, and in Frye Vil- 



38 

lage, Cape and Scotland Districts, and in Ballard Vale where 
needed. 

The sidewalks on Marland Street, Ballardvale, have been 
graded from tlie top of the hill to the Methodist Church. 
About eight rods of new sidewalk have been laid from Patrick 
Conway's to Lowell Street, and the gutters have been cleaned 
on several streets. 

The gutters have been cleaned on Main, Central, School, 
Essex, Brook, Pearson, Elm, and Higli Streets, and on Maple 
Avenue. 

The trees have been trimmed on Maple and Punchard 
Avenues, Elm, School, and Central Streets. The large elm 
near Whiting's store has been removed, with several others. 

Length of roads stoned, two miles and fifteen rods. Two 
hundred rods of this are thirty-six feet wide, being eighteen 
feet each side of the track, equal to one mile and eighty rods 
of single road. 

Length of road gravelled, including work done with the 
road machine, eight and one-half miles. 

The bridge at Frye Village has been new planked, and the 
Shawsheen bridge at Hartwell Abbott's has been repaired. 
Three culverts have been rebuilt. 

Eight hundred and eighteen feet of railing have been put 
up in the following places : Haggetts Pond, Frye Village, 
Essex, Cuba, and School Streets. 

Two thousand and thirty-eight loads of gravel have been 
used, and five thousand, three hundred and fourteen cubic 
yards of stone and gravel have been run through the crusher. 
Over three hundred loads of road-wash have been used for 
filling, and about tlie same number have been sold, and tlie 
money paid to the Town Treasurer. 

Two hundred and six dollars have been received from the 
Boston & Maine Railroad Co. fur grading, and paid to the 
Town Treasurer. 

The stones have been raked away every two weeks during 
the season. Two men worked six weeks sinking the large 
stones that were in the roads about town. 



39 

Two hundred and twenty-seven loads of gravel have been 
placed on the road leading from Frank Cunningliam's to War- 
ren Bailey's, known as the Warren Bailey lane (this gravel 
was given by said Bailey), several large stones have been re- 
moved, and the bushes have been cut. 
Respectfully yours, 

JOSEPH T. LOVEJOY, 

SupH of Streets.

J i E t» O R T 



OF THE 



Selectmen and Assessors. 



SOHOOLS AND SOHOOL-HOUSES. 

The School Committee ask for the following appropriations : 
Schools, 120400 ; School-houses, 12500 ; Text-books and sup- 
plies, 11800 ; for tlie Abbott Village School-house, 111,000 
in addition to what has already been spent. We refer you 
to the School Report for further information relating to their 
department. 

HiaSWAYS, BRIDaES, AND SIDEWALKS. 

The Superintendent of Streets gives a detailed statement 
of his roadwork in his Report on pages 35-39 

Tlie travel on our roads constantly increases, and better 
roads are needed and demanded. The Street Department is 
now well supplied witli macliinery and teams for making 
good roads, and liberal appropriations ought to be made 
therefor. 

We again call the attention of the Town to our report of a 
year ago in regard to widening and defining the line of Main 
Street. " The Essex Turnpike — now Main Street — was laid 
out sixty-six feet wide in 1806. Abutters have encroached 
upon and fenced in portions of the original lay-out, and that 
ground must be recovered, as every inch of the sixty-six feet 
width is needed for the public use." We would recommend 
that the county commissioners be called upon to relay out 
Main Street. 



57 

We recommend the appropriation of 110000 for Highways 
and 11500 for Sidewalks. 

EEMOVING SNOW. 

The amount of snow that may fall and block our ways be- 
ing an unknown quantity at town meetingtime, it will be well 
to liave the appropriation large enough. We advise $800. 

TOWN HOESES. 

The Town now owns five horses — three teams for road 
work. We refer to the " Earnings of Horses " account on 
page 40, for a showing to their credit for the past year. We 
repeat that we believe the horses to be a good investment for 
the Town. The town teams are ready for use at all times 
and seasons. Under the old system the road work was sub- 
ject to the convenience of private owners of teams. We 
recommend an appropriation of f 3300 for horses and driv- 
ers, as a new horse will be necessary to complete three teams, 
one horse having been sold. 

PAY OP TOWN OPPIOEES. 

An appropriation of 15000 will be sufficient for this 
account. 

TOWN HOUSE. 
The Town House is now well fitted for the business carried 
on therein. All the rooms on the ground flour being in daily 
use, the running expenses of heating, lighting, and janitor 
work are large. A considerable amount must be expended 
in repairs each year. Much of the expense is repaid in 
rents — 1796 last year. We recommend an appropriation of 
11500 for Town House. 

PIEE DEPAETMENT. 

The Engineers ask for an appropriation of 12500 for run- 
ning expenses. 



58 

INSURANCE. 
The usual amount, |300, will be enough for renewals of 
policies the current year. 

HAY SCALES. 
This useful and profitable piece of town property will need 
$50 for running expenses and possible repairs. 

STEEET LIGHTING. 
The amount of 14600 will be required for this purpose. 

FEINTING AND STATIONEET. 
This expense necessarily increases : the various reports 
grow larger, and more stationery is required, year by year. 
$1000 will be sufficient for the current year. 

STATE AID AND MILITAEY AID. 
The last appropriation for State Aid, was $1600, (and 
the expenditure nearly balanced.) The same amount will 
probably be sufficient for this year ; and $500 for Military 
Aid. All of the State Aid, and one half of the Military Aid, 
returns to the town treasury. 

MEMOEIAL DAY. 

$200, the usual amount, as for years past, is recom- 
mended, and that it be expended under direction of Post 99, 
G.A.R. 

SPEING GEOVE OEMETEEY. 
The Committee in charge ask for $200 and the money 
received from sales of lots, grass, etc. 

SHADE TEEES. 

We recommend the appropriation of $100 for shade trees 
for the public highways, to be spent under the direction of 
the Farmers' Club. 



59 

STATE AND COUNTY TAXES. 

Nobody knows how much the town will be required to pay 
on these accounts. We can only estimate. As shown else- 
where, the last State Tax was less and the County Tax more 
than the appropriation. We advise the same amounts as last 
year, — 16000 for each tax. 

DISCOUNT ON TAXES. 

We advise tliat five per cent discount be allowed this year, 
the same as last, and that an appropriation of $3000 be made 
therefor. 

ABATEMENT AND EEMISSION OF TAXES. 
$300 will be sufficient for this account. 

INTEEEST ON NOTES, BONDS, AND FUNDS. 
$8500 will be needed for these accounts. 

WATEEWOEKS. 
The Commissioners ask for the following amounts : Bond 
payments, $5000 ; Maintenance, $3800 ; Sinking Fund, No. 

1, $150; No. 2, $150. 

MEMOEIAL HALL. 

We are informed by the Trustees that the funds available 
for running expenses are insufficient to fully pay for lighting 
the building. We recommend that an appropriation of $175 
be made therefor. 

MISCELLANEOUS. 

This appropriation is intended to cover all expenditures 
not otherwise provided for. Unforseen contingencies are 
liable to arise, suits for damages, etc. We advise an allow- 
ance of $1500. 



60 



THE FINANCIAL YEAR. 

The town accounts being closed in January, with most of 
the appropriations nearly or quite exhausted, the February 
pay-day is the beginning of the new financial year, so far as 
payments are concerned, and in order to provide money there- 
for, we advise that the annual vote authorizing the Treasurer 
to hire money be amended so as to provide for this. 

We refer to the Treasurer's Report for information relating 
to the financial affairs of the town.

Overseers' Report. 



The business affairs of the Almshouse and farm have been 
well conducted as heretofore. The house continues to be a 
model of neatness and good keeping throughout. The farm 
produced good crops, which aided largely in paying the ex- 
penses. 

The ordinary running expenses of the Almshouse will be 
about the same as last year. 

The State Inspector of buildings visited the Almshouse 
and he recommended that the stairs be placed at each end of 
the building, instead of in the middle as now, so that in the 
case of fire a better means of escape would be afforded the 
inmates. We would also recommend that the sum of five 
hundred dollars (1500) be appropriated for this purpose. 

The buildings are in good repair, a new boiler has been put 
in and new floors laid. 

It is with much regret that we have received the resigna- 
tion of Mrs. Allen, wlio has been matron for the last four- 
teen years, which position she lias filled with credit to herself 
and to the town. Since Mrs. Allen has been in charge, the 
Almshouse has been a model from which others might 
well copy. The efficiency of her services is too well known 
to need further comment and we hope that she may be 
blessed with health and prosperity wherever she may go. 
Milo H. Gould, whose services as superintendent have been 
eminently satisfactory, has also handed in his resignation. 

We have to report an overdraw in the expenditures for 
relief out of Almshouse. This expense is something which 



70 



cannot be accurately estimated The cost of pauperism to 
the state grows larger each year and in order to relieve 
the state, laws have been passed and amended which com- 
pel cities and towns to bear a larger proportion of the 
burdens than formerly. 

The tramp nuisance is still on the decrease, 1030 this 
year against 1153 in 1891. We only wish that the de- 
crease might be still more marked each year.

Report of Cemetery Committee. 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their Annual 
Report, with the statement of the receipts and expenditures 
for the year ending January 13th, 1893. 

During the past year the avenues and walks have been 
gravelled, and one new avenue laid out, with fifty single 
grave-lots thereon, and other needed improvements that were 
required to keep the grounds in order. Owners of lots have 
expressed themselves as being satisfied with the general 
appearance of the Cemetery. 

Seven burial lots and seven single graves have been sold 
during the past year. 

The improvements needed for the ensuing year : The 
walks to be kept gravelled, the embankment taken away 
from the face wall. 

We therefore respectfully ask for the appropriation of 
$200, with the proceeds of such sales as may be made from 
the premises during the ensuing year.

Twenty-first Annual Report 



Trustees of Memorial Hall. 



The statistics of the accompanying report of the Librarian 
attest the large use and usefulness of the different depart- 
ments of the Library during the past year. Three hundred 
new volumes have been added to the twelve thousand already 
on our shelves, aside from the fifty volumes of weekly or 
monthly periodicals which have been bound, and the two 
hundred old books so much used as to need rebinding. The 
gradually increasing number of youth wlio frequent the Lib- 
rary for consultation of books of reference and the readuig of 
newspapers and magazines is a favorable feature which has 
attracted notice. 

The introduction of electric lights in the Reading-room 
within the year has been a source of great satisfaction and 
comfort to the large number of patrons whose only time for 
using the Library is in the evening. We feel sure that the 
citizens of the town will never be willing to return to the 
inadequate and injurious system of lighting previously em- 
ployed. 

By the generosity of a few gentlemen a fine portrait of 
Hon. Amos Abbott, a well-known former citizen of Andover, 
has been presented to the Library, and, after the regilding of 
the frame, hung in the Hall. It would be quite in keeping 
with the design of Memorial Hall if similar memorials of other 
prominent residents of the town could be added to those 
already in its possession. 



92 

We record with sadness the recent death of Mr. John Cor- 
nell, who had been one of the Trustees of Memorial Hall for 
nearly sixteen years, and whose excellent judgment and pub- 
lic spirit made him a specially valuable member of our 
Board. He supplemented this long period of faithful service 
in the interests of the Library by making to it the generous 
bequest indicated in the following extract from his will : 

'''Item sixth. — To the Trustees of Memorial Hall in said 
Andover the sum of five thousand dollars, the same to be ex- 
pended in the purchase of a collection of historical articles 
and such works of art as they may deem expedient. 

Item seventh. — To the Trustees of the Memorial Hall in 
said Andover, and their successors in office, five thousand 
dollars, the income there from to be expended in the care 
and preservation of the collection mentioned in the sixth item 
hereof." 

The vacancy occasioned by the death of Mr. Cornell was 
filled at the last meeting of the Board by the election of Mr. 
George W. Foster. 

Respectfully submitted,

The Public Park. 



The Conimittee on Public Park beg leave to report as fol- 
Gws : 

A public paik in Andover may hoc be of such urgent need 
as are many other improvements, but it has seemed best to 
your committee to consider tlie future and not the present in 
preparing this report. On the east side of the " Old Rail- 
road," between Andover and North Andover, the town owns 
a tract of woodland, familiarly known as " Carmel Woods," 
whose rolling surface and handsome groves might be made 
into a beautiful park. 

This piece of land may be considered to be quite a distance 
from the centre, but there are several reasons why it comes 
into this report for consideration. The town owns it; its 
surface is broken by pretty knolls and glens, and attractive 
groves, walks and drives could be laid out within its border^ 
with a small outlay each year. 

It is the judgment of your committee that a landscape 
gardner or some forrester should be secured to lay out this 
piece of land on a plan, and year by year a small sum should 
be appropriated to cut a few trees, make a few walks, and all 
being in accord with a definite, well-defined plan, would in a 
few years give to our town an attractive pleasure ground with 
but little expenditure of money. 

The committee further recommends that the town carefully 
consider the land known as the " Richardson lot," and its 
value to the town if acquired and improved. This piece of 



IIT 

land is the best located of any plat in town for a local, cen- 
tral public play-ground. It is not large enough to be con- 
sidered as a public park, but its size easily admits of an 
ample and first-class play-ground, intersected by walks and 
dotted by bits of lawn, all making a delighttul breathing 
place for old and young. Its near location to the school 
buildings owned by the town, and the assured growth of the 
town should be considered. 

The question of draining tlie centre of town finds a partial 
solution in the lowering of Stony Brook : the control of the 
Richardson lot puts this brook into the hands of the town and 
its lowering would afford not only the proper drainage of this 
land, but many acres of land back of the Richardson property, 
desirable and attractive for building purposes, if properly 
drained. Tlie filling in of low places in this land, if owned 
by the town, could be done as the town was able, and by use 
of refuse matter now used to fill in private land, need not be 
an expensive job.

Sewerage. 



The Committee on Drainage and Sewerage having looked 
over the most thickly settled portion of the town are unani- 
mous in concluding that the time has arrived when the Town 
sliould, without delay, secure a competent surveyor's plan, 
specifications, and estimates, for the construction of such a 
system of sewerage as may be acceptable to the Town and 
State board of health. The committee have no desire to cite 
individual cases to convince the citizens that a necessity exists 
demanding the better protection of tlie Town against dis- 
ease, and would recommend that the Town elect commission- 
ers to carry a system of sewerage into effect.

We have examined the accounts of the Town Officers, 
and find them correct, with satisfactory vouchers for all 
payments made.

National Bank thirty-six hundred and ninety-seven dollars 
and ninety-one cents ($3697.91) to the credit of the water 
loan, and eight-hundred and sixty-two dollars and twenty- 
seven cents (1862.27) town funds; total, forty-five hundred 
and sixty dollars and eighteen cents (14560.18).

The Town hy vote March 7, 1892, authorized and instructed 
this Board to petition the Legislature for permission to issue 
Water Bonds to an amount not exceeding forty thousand 
dollars, in addition to those already issued, to be used from 
time to time in improving ^nd extending the water system. 
Permission was granted by an act approved by the Governor, 
April 20, 1892. 

At a special Town Meeting held for this purpose May 18, 
1892, it was voted to issue ten thousand dollars' worth of 
bonds under the above act redeemable in thirty years and 
bearing interest at 4 per cent, and secured by a Sinking Fund 
then established, as in such cases provided these bonds were 
to be sold to the highest bidder and all premiums received 
therefor to be placed in the Sinking Fund. The highest bid 
received was from N. W. Harris & Co., of Boston, who 
offered 103.315 or a premium of 13 3.15 on each bond and 
1831.50 on the issue which amount the Treasurer was autlio- 
rized to deposit in the Broadway Savings Bank to the credit 
of the Sinking Fund for this issue of bonds. There has been 
expended out of this amount

Leaving a balance unexpended of $3440 08 

Under the above head of Pipe Distribution we have extend- 
ed Steet lines on Porter Street, from Salem Street to Ira 
Eastman's 258 feet of 6-inch pipe, on Elm Street from Wash- 
ington Avenue to M. C. Andrews' barn, 2882 feet of 6-inch 
pipe, and from the Ink Factory in Frye Village, on Main and 
Union Streets, to the Lawrence line, 2316 feet 6-inch pipe. 



REPORT OP WATER COMMISSIONERS. O 

On B Street leading from the Lowell Road to Charles 
O'Hara's 829 feet 6-inch pipe, and connected the lines on 
Washington Avenue with 653 feet 4-inch pipe and 10 feet, 
6 inch. These lines were provided with Hydrants and 
Valves, as were required. We have also raised on Main 
Street five Hydrants to correspond to the new grade of the 
street. There are several extensions that should be made the 
coming year. The most important is connecting the dead 
ends on tlie road leading from West Parish to Frye Village. 
This, with some others of minor importance, will require 
about all of the balance remaining. 

A settlement has been made with the owners of the Res- 
ervoir Lot, which completes the list of all bills and liabilities 
incurred in constructing the works. It is some satisfaction 
to know that all have been settled without litigation or extra 
expense to the Town. 

A new Boiler of the perfect combustion pattern was pur- 
chased and appears to work very satisfactorily. We refer 
you to the Superintendent's Report for particulars relating 
to this and other matters. 

The increase in the use of water means more pumping. 
This will increase the cost of maintenance, and we ask an 
appropriation of S3800 for this purpose. The two Sinking 
Funds will require $150 each. 

During the past year there have been many disadvantages 
to contend with in doing the regular routine work required, 
and in attending to the various duties that naturally arise in 
the care and supervision of the works. The amount of 
pumping required now compels us to employ a regular engi- 
neer, but there is no place for him to live, unless it is a 
long distance from his daily work. It would be far better 
both for him and the safety of the valuable property in and 
about the station if he was near at hand. We have no shop 
at present, either to prepare pipe or to do ordinary repairs. 
We have depended on hired teams since the works were 
started which has been expensive and oftentimes very unsat- 
isfactory. Under these circumstances we think the time has

come when these should be provided and owned by the Town, 
both as a matter of economy and for the better care and pro- 
tection of your valuable property. 

Your Commissioners, therefore, ask authority to issue ten 
thousand dollars' worth of bonds, the present year part to be 
used for the above purposes which will require some $4000, 
the remauider to be used in extending and improving the 
system from time to time as the case may demand.

HEJPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. 1*7 

Contracts were made for Boiler No. 2 early in April, and 
work on the foundations begun. Owing to a strike among 
the boiler makers, it was late in November before the boiler 
was in shape to he lun with economy. It is now completed 
and doing as well as Boiler No. 1. While putting in the 
foundations for Boiler No. 2 it was deemed advisable to take 
out the brick floor and construct a pit eighteen inches deep 
under both boilers, making the bottoms accessable for exam- 
ination and repairs. This work was charged to the appro- 
priation for ''New Boiler." 

The pumps were thoroughly overhauled in December, im- 
proving the duty about 15 per cent. Owing to the increased 
work to be performed, it was thought advisable to procure 
the services of an experienced engineer to run the pumps, 
and after several changes Mr. George W. Spickler was in- 
stalled in that capacity. 

Annexed will be found the records showing duty of pumps. 
Average daily consumption, etc.

18 REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. 

There have been repaired thirty leaks on joints, two split 
pipes, and three h3^drants. These leaks have, in almost 
every case, been caused by defective workmanship, and have 
been about equally divided between the old and new lines 
of pipe. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. SMITH.
